Don’t miss my conversation with George Leef, coming up after this week’s market update. A busy news week in Washington gave investors cause for both hope and […]

What Is America Going To Look Like When Stocks, Home Prices And Even Used Cars All Crash By At Least 50 Percent?

Have you ever thought about what comes after the bubble?  In 2008 we got a short preview of what life will be like, but most Americans seem to have come to the conclusion that the last financial crisis was just a minor bump in the road toward endless economic prosperity.  But of course the truth is that the ridiculously high debt-fueled standard of living that we are enjoying now is not sustainable, and after this bubble bursts it will be an extremely painful adjustment for our society. Since the last financial crisis, the U.S. national debt has nearly doubled, corporate […]

JPMorgan Chase Rigging Silver Prices

JPMorgan Chase is back on the list of bullion banks being sued for rigging silver prices and cheating clients. Last week, a New York appeals court overturned a lower court’s dismissal of the suit, paving the way for additional discovery. The JPMorgan suit has been built largely upon trading data and patterns. This differs from the suit recently settled by Deutsche Bank and still pending against a group of other large banks. The evidence there includes chat logs and voice recordings representing what appears to be “smoking gun” evidence of traders colluding with one another to cheat. The ruling represents […]

Silver Prices for the Year 2017

How low and how high will the price of silver range on the PAPER markets during 2017? Knowing the influence central bankers, politicians, HFT algos, bullion banks and JPMorgan exercise over increasingly managed markets … it is impossible to answer the question, and it is probably the wrong question to ask. Instead, what do we know with a high degree of certainty? The U.S. national debt will substantially increase as it has almost every year since 1913. We can trust politicians and central bankers to act in their best interests to spend in excess of their revenues and increase total […]

Gold Prices Hacked! (Shocking New & Old Facts Surface…)

Major U.S. and international banks cheat their customers and rig markets. Revelations have been piling up since the 2008 financial crisis. Hundreds of billions have been paid in fines, penalties, and settlements. The fraud, price manipulation, lying, and theft – once considered conspiracy theories – are now incontrovertible conspiracy facts. This reality is dawning now in the precious metals industry. GATA, the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, labored for years making the case for price manipulation in the markets. They, and others, made a powerful argument complete with price charts and trading patterns that simply could not be explained in free […]

Silver Prices and the Russian Connection

Silver prices nearly reached $ 50.00 in April of 2011. They crashed to a low under $ 14 in December of 2015 and currently (December 2016) sit at about $ 16. Silver prices, in our increasingly unreal debt based fiat currency world, streak higher and subsequently crash to unbelievable lows. Option One: Silver prices are near the end of their correction and will rally substantially higher. Why? Exponential increases in debt and total currency in circulation lift the prices for nearly everything, including college tuition, cigarettes, the S&P, housing, health care, silver and gold. We have heard this before and […]

What has gone wrong with oil prices, debt, and GDP growth?

Our economy is a mystery to almost everyone, including economists. Let me explain the way I see the situation: (1) The big thing that pulls the economy forward is the time-shifting nature of debt and debt-like instruments. If we want any kind of specialization, we need some sort of long-term obligation that will make that specialization worthwhile. If one hunter-gatherer specializes in finding flints that will start fires, that hunter-gatherer needs some sort of guarantee that others, who are finding food, will share some of their food with him, so that the group, as a whole, can prosper. Others, who […]

Silver Prices in an Exponential Financial System

Our financial systems create exponential increases in: Debt Prices for stocks Prices for commodities Currency in circulation Prices for gold and silver Why? Fractional reserve banking, central banks creating more currency, and politicians who spend governments deeper into debt each year… but this article isn’t about why. Student loan debt in the U.S. is about $ 1.4 trillion, auto debt is about $ 1 trillion, official national debt is nearly $ 20 trillion, corporate debt is huge and the list goes on. Much of it will never be paid in current dollars. Default will occur via repudiation or hyperinflation. Look […]

Why energy prices are ultimately headed lower; what the IMF missed

We have been hearing a great deal about IMF concerns recently, after the release of its October 2016 World Economic Outlook and its Annual Meeting October 7-9. The concerns mentioned include the following: Too much growth in debt, with China particularly mentioned as a problem World economic growth seems to have slowed on a long-term basis Central bank intervention required to produce artificially low interest rates, to produce even this low growth Global international trade is no longer growing rapidly Economic stagnation could lead to protectionist calls These issues are very much related to issues that I have been writing about: […]
